Even though Thomas Jane’s pipe-swinging comedy Hung, saw a 13% dip in ratings from its first and second season premieres, and was by no means a lock for renewal, the show will live to entertain audiences again. 10 more episodes are in store, with THR presuming that HBO might be considering Hung a comfortable bridge for audiences between the soon-to-conclude Entourage, and whatever replaces it.
It’s important to consider that repeated airings of original programming is HBO’s bread and butter, and that Entourage, one of the company’s flagship shows, was down 25%. Considering all that, Hung isn’t in such a bad place.
